This past Tuesday, October 13, 2015 Yeshivah of Flatbush had its first kumzitz of the year, bringing in Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan. With all the recent attacks in Israel it is important that we keep our brothers and sisters in mind, and that's what this kumzits was about. It was a time where we had a chance to reflect and pray, a time of Achdut, unity. Students and faculty, led by Dean of Students, Rabbi Naftali Besser, sang with their heart and souls for our brothers and sisters, Acheinu, in Israel.
We saw pictures of students doing chesed in Israel and here in the United States to inspire us to do more. With heavy hearts we sang as one, and were reminded that acts of kindness, or chesed, can help us get through tough times like this. ~Clarice Soffer, Class of 2016
